The compact four-seater will make its first appearance in 'FT-86' (Future Toyota 86) concept form at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show and is set to hit production shortly after. With its lightweight construction and rear-wheel drive layout, the 86 is the spiritual replacement for exciting Toyotas like the Supra and the AE-86, it is named after.

The car's adventurous styling is a direct development of the highly acclaimed FT-HS concept car first shown at Detroit's North American International Auto Show in the beginning of 2007. The FT-86 sports many curvaceous lines and has relatively short overhangs. Oval shapes dominate the interior, highlighted by the unusually white gauge cluster. The dashboard is covered in leather. The various compartments in the dash can be accessed through zippers.

Subaru's involvement can be found under the bonnet; one of the company's trademark flat-four engines. Apart from its configuration and 2-litre displacement, Toyota have not released many details on the Subaru boxer. Enthusiasts will be happy to note that the power is transferred to the rear wheels and through a six-speed gearbox that is operated by an old-fashioned stick and clutch.
